IIT Kharagpur to set up an 'Academy of Leadership' to develop innovative programmes

Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur is going to set up an Academy of Leadership. The academy is being set up with an aim to develop innovative programmes combining the core curricula in science and engineering disciplines with philosophy and liberal arts.

Partha S Ghosh, an alumnus and a management consultant of IIT KGP, has donated $1 million to the institute for the setting up of an academy. The new academy will be called 'Partha S Ghosh Academy of Leadership'.

PP Chakrabarti, Director of IIT Kharagpur, said, "It is indeed an opportune time to expand the scope of the value proposition of the academic excellence at IIT Kharagpur by developing the next phase education process. This is to be based not only on scientific and technical training, but the teachings of ancient philosophies, reasoning, intuitive thinking, systems engineering and the past successes and failures of humanity." 

"Under this academy, programmes would be developed to nurture leadership qualities in individuals and organisations, enable leaders of various walks and segments of life to share their perspective, making it a vibrant self-sufficient one with a global reputation," Chakrabarti added.
